Book Review: “The Ruby Circle” by Richelle Mead 

Hey guys!

So, I finally finished the Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead. I am so upset that it is over, but all good things must come to an end.

Overview from GoodReads:

Their forbidden romance exposed, Sydney and Adrian find themselves facing the wrath of both the Alchemists and the Moroi in this electrifying conclusion to Richelle Mead’s bestselling Bloodlines series. When the life of someone they both love is put on the line, Sydney risks everything to hunt down a deadly former nemesis. Meanwhile, she and Adrian becomes enmeshed in a puzzle that could hold the key to a shocking secret about spirit magic, a secret that could shake the entire Moroi world and alter their lives forever.

This book was just so amazing! I almost cried at the ending. This was just a wonderful ending to a wonderful series.

Book Review: “Chuck Yeager Goes Supersonic” by Alan W. Biermann

Hello everybody!

My sister had bought this book for me while we were at the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. over the weekend.

Overview from GoodReads:

Young readers will love the legend of the great American aviator, Chuck Yeager, who grew up from humble beginnings to become the first person to fly a plane faster than the speed of sound. This beautifully illustrated book shows scenes of Chuck as a boy in rural West Virginia, describes his wild flights as a test pilot in the U. S. Air Force, and recounts the terrifying bumping and rattling flights as he neared the “sound barrier.” The book presents a chapter on what the sound barrier is and why it is so dangerous. The reader can experience, with Chuck, the beautiful moment of success as his rocket plane breaks through to supersonic speeds. Young people will remember always this heroic story and the legendary pilot who took the world of aviation into a new era.

I really enjoyed reading this book and, although it seems like a children’s book, it was very informative and the drawings were just outstandingly done!

Until my next post,

Book Review: “Silver Shadows” by Richelle Mead

Hi everybody!

I finished reading “Silver Shadows” by Richelle Mead! Finally! One more book to go!

Synopsis from GoodReads:

In The Fiery Heart, Sydney risked everything to follow her gut, walking a dangerous line to keep her feelings hidden from the Alchemists. Now in the aftermath of an event that ripped their world apart, Sydney and Adrian struggle to pick up the pieces and find their way back to each other. But first, they have to survive. For Sydney, trapped and surrounded by adversaries, life becomes a daily struggle to hold on to her identity and the memories of those she loves. Meanwhile, Adrian clings to hope in the face of those who tell him Sydney is a lost cause, but the battle proves daunting as old demons and new temptations begin to seize hold of him. . . .

Just like all the other Richelle Mead books, this book was absolutely incredible! I love the romance between Sydney and Adrian and it really shows in this book. I cried when I read the parts about when Sydney was in the re-education facility – nobody should ever have to go through that.

Until my next post,
